Two By Two: Overboard!
There were a number of new releases at UK cinemas last weekend and this is very nicely reflected on this weeks box office with 6 new movies entering the top 10.

The list is headed up by the animated sequel Two By Two: Overboard! which makes its debut at the top, and in doing so brings to an ends the 8 week run of Tenet.

This weeks top 5 alone has 4 movies making their debut, then further down the box office is All My Life which makes its debut at number 9 and Max Winslow And The House Of Secrets which enters at number 10.

Also worthy of note, this weeks top 15 did far bette than last week with the combined gross nearly £1.5 Million.

Here is the top 15 box office Quickview.

  • Number 1 - Two By Two: Overboard! (1 week)
  • Highest debut - Two By Two: Overboard! (@1)
  • Longest run - Tent (9 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Tenet (£17,122,299)

Here is a breakdown of the UK box office top 5 23rd - 25th October 2020.

Two By Two: Overboard!

Makings its debut at the top of the box office is the animated sequel to Two By Two from 2015 which took £566,871 on its debut.

The follow up takes £329.265 on its debut weekend, which in the current COVID-19 climate of actually a good debut, the half term holiday will have helped.

Honest Thief

Honest Thief

Liam Neeson brings his latest revenge thriller to the big screen and makes a debut at number 2 with £254,267.

It is worth noting that although Two By Two: Overboard! is the top film this is with previews and over the 3 day weekend this would have been the top movie.

The Secret Garden

Given the half term week I would have thought this new adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's novel would have done better but a debut at 3 with £154,087 is still good.

The original adaptation of the novel was in 1994 and starred Maggie Smith and was directed by Agnieszka Holland, it took over £3 Million at the box office.


Despite the fact that Warner Bros. has not been pleased with the performance of this movie it spent 8 weeks at the top and only on its 9th weekend of release falls to number 4 with £134,968, 28% down from last weekend.

The movie is the 5th hight grossing movie of 2020 with £17.7 Million so far.


This British heist movie directed by Barnaby Thompson lands on the chart at number 5 this week with £116,517.

It has had good reviews from critics so the future could be good for the movie and a long chart run possible.
